    (b) Each transferee corporation is entitled to receive for each school year on account of each transferred student, except a student transferred under section 6 of this chapter, transfer tuition from the transferor corporation or the state as provided in this chapter. Transfer tuition equals the amount determined under STEP THREE of the following formula:
        STEP ONE: Allocate to each transfer student the capital expenditures for any special equipment used by the transfer student and a proportionate share of the operating costs incurred by the transferee school for the class of school where the transfer student is enrolled.
        STEP TWO: If the transferee school included the transfer student in the transferee school's current ADM, for a school year, allocate to the transfer student a proportionate share of the following general fund revenues of the transferee school attributable to the period in which the student is included in current ADM for, except as provided in clause (C), the calendar year in which the school year ends:

The operating cost for each class of school is based on the total expenditures of the transferee corporation for the class of school from its general fund expenditures as specified in the classified budget forms prescribed by the state board of accounts. This calculation excludes:
        (1) capital outlay;
        (2) debt service;
        (3) costs of transportation;

        (1) the transferee school corporation's operating costs for the class of school in which the transfer student is enrolled; by
        (2) the student enrollment of the class of school in which the transfer student is enrolled.
When a transferred student is enrolled in a transferee corporation for less than the full school year of student attendance, the transfer tuition shall be calculated by the part of the school year for which the transferred student is enrolled. A school year of student attendance consists of the number of days school is in session for student attendance. A student, regardless of the student's attendance, is enrolled in a transferee school unless the student is no longer entitled to be transferred because of a change of residence, the student has been excluded or expelled from school for the balance of the school year or for an indefinite period, or the student has been confirmed to have withdrawn from school. The transferor and the transferee corporation may enter into written agreements concerning the amount of transfer tuition due in any school year. If an agreement cannot be reached, the amount shall be determined by the state board, and costs may be established, when in dispute, by the state board of accounts.

However, for state tuition support distributions or any other state distribution computed using less than the total current ADM of the transferee school, the transferee school shall allocate the revenues to the transfer student by dividing the revenues that the transferee school is eligible to receive in a calendar year during the period by the student count used to compute the state distribution.
    (h) Instead of the payments provided in subsection (b), the transferor corporation or state owing transfer tuition may enter into a long term contract with the transferee corporation governing the transfer of students. The contract may:
        (1) be entered into for a period of not more than five (5) years with an option to renew;
        (2) specify a maximum number of students to be transferred; and
        (3) fix a method for determining the amount of transfer tuition and the time of payment, which may be different from that

provided in section 14 of this chapter.
    (i) A school corporation may negotiate transfer tuition agreements with a neighboring school corporation that can accommodate additional students. Agreements under this section may:
        (1) be for one (1) year or longer; and
        (2) fix a method for determining the amount of transfer tuition or time of payment that is different from the method, amount, or time of payment that is provided in this section or section 14 of this chapter.
A school corporation may not transfer a student under this section without the prior approval of the child's parent.

(a) The transferee corporation is entitled to receive from the transferor corporation transfer tuition for each transferred student for each school year calculated in two (2) parts:
        (1) operating cost; and
        (2) capital cost.
These costs must be allocated on a per student basis separately for each class of school.
    (b) The operating cost for each class of school must be based on the total expenditures of the transferee corporation for the class from its general fund expenditures as set out on the classified budget forms prescribed by the state board of accounts, excluding from the calculation capital outlay, debt service, costs of transportation, salaries of board members, contracted service for legal expenses and any expenditure that is made out of the general fund from extracurricular account receipts, for the school year.
    (c) The capital cost for each class of school must consist of the lesser of the following alternatives:
        (1) The capital cost must be based on an amount equal to five percent (5%) of the cost of transferee corporation's physical plant, equipment, and all items connected to the physical plant or equipment, including:
            (A) buildings, additions, and remodeling to the buildings, excluding ordinary maintenance; and
            (B) on-site and off-site improvements such as walks, sewers, waterlines, drives, and playgrounds;
        that have been paid or are obligated to be paid in the future out of the general fund, capital projects fund, or debt service fund, including principal and interest, lease rental payments, and funds that were legal predecessors to these funds. If an item of the

physical plant, equipment, appurtenances, or part of the item is more than twenty (20) years old at the beginning of the school year, the capital cost of the item shall be disregarded in making the capital cost computation.
        (2) The capital cost must be based on the amount budgeted from the general fund for capital outlay for physical plant, equipment, and appurtenances and the amounts levied for the debt service fund and the capital projects fund for the calendar year in which the school year ends.
    (d) If an item of expense or cost cannot be allocated to a class of school, the item shall be prorated to all classes of schools on the basis of the ADM of each class in the transferee corporation, as determined in the fall count of ADM in the school year, compared to the total current ADM therein, as determined in the fall count of ADM in the school year.
    (e) The transfer tuition for each student transferred for each school year shall be calculated by dividing the transferee school corporation's total operating costs and the total capital costs for the class of school in which the student is enrolled by the ADM of students therein, as determined in the fall count of ADM in the school year. If a transferred student is enrolled in a transferee corporation for less than the full school year, the transfer tuition shall be calculated by the proportion of such school year for which the transferred student is enrolled. A school year for this purpose consists of the number of days school is in session for student attendance. A student shall be enrolled in a transferee school, whether or not the student is in attendance, unless the:
        (1) student's residence is outside the area of students transferred to the transferee corporation;
        (2) student has been excluded or expelled from school; or
        (3) student has been confirmed as a school dropout.
The transferor and transferee corporations may enter into written agreements concerning the amount of transfer tuition. If an agreement cannot be reached, the amount shall be determined by the state superintendent, with costs to be established, where in dispute, by the state board of accounts.
    (f) The transferor corporation shall pay the transferee corporation, when billed, the amount of book rental due from transferred students who are unable to pay the book rental amount. The transferor corporation is entitled to collect the amount of the book rental from the appropriate township trustee, from its own funds, or from any other source, in the amounts and manner provided by law.
